Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) dropped a bombshell on Thursday when he revealed Republicans are planning on filing criminal charges against Lois Lerner for her role in the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups.
“The Obama Administration was very lenient with the crimes that Lois Lerner committed,” Roskam said, according to The Gateway Pundit. “And those are strong words that I’m using but the House Ways and Means Committee voted out a criminal referral to the Department of Justice which was completely dismissed by the Department of Justice… We think that Lois Lerner did two things wrong. Number one, she denied people due process and equal protection of the law based on their political philosophy. We’re convinced that there is overwhelming evidence to suggest that that’s true. And that’s a felony. Secondly, we suspect that she lied to the Inspecter General of the Treasury Department.”
This came a day after Roskam and Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions asking him to take a “fresh look” at Lerner. They wrote that when the Obama Department of Justice declined to prosecute Lerner, “the agency was following President Obama’s signal on how he wanted the investigation to be handled.”
“Taxpayers deserve to know that the DOJ’s previous evaluation was not tainted by politics,” they added, according to The Washington Examiner.
